InterContinental Resort Aqaba

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Me and my partner stayed at the intercom for 5 nights at the beginning of October. The place was very quiet and even the buffet restaurant was closed in the evenings due to this. Maybe this was just a low season when we visited, I’m not sure. Our room was lovely however, there was bird muck and feathers all over our balcony which was a shame as we had an amazing view of the sea, but could not enjoy it. We asked housekeeping to clean it but they just swept the feathers up and left the rest of the muck. The best thing about this hotel is definitely the club lounge thiugh. The breakfast, snacks, happy hour every night and the excellent service of the staff. We were so well looked after, and nothing was too much for the staff. Thank you for making our stay so much more enjoyable.

All in all amazing time and vacation to spend 5/5 for all staff and arrangment espically animation guys and team , super !! impresiive !! many thanks fo all ( Eva oksana tania and luigi for their work , and always smile hat off guys , will back soon sure thansk

I travelled to Aqaba and decided to stay in Intercontinental Aqaba I will begin by thanking the staff that works there, everybody is so nice and helping. The check in was fast and easy and the people working at the reception were really helpful and provided us with all the answers we needed. The room was clean and interior is very cozy. We were provided by free amenities that are not in the mini bar like water tea and coffee. There is also an iron and ironing table which isn't available in most hotels. The animation team were awesome!! They are really friendly and work hard making the beach and pool areas as fun as possible, I can proudly say I made new friends!! When you pick up your towels for the beach, they give you a cooler filled with ice and mini water bottles - free of charge! And I find that a nice gesture from the hotel. The beach is Sandy - minimum rocks which makes it pleasant to walk barefoot We would like to say thank you again for making our stay so comfortable and lovely

Whenever we go to Aqaba, this is the place we stay we choose intercontinental because We like the way it’s clean and organized and they have very friendly atmosphere and I just want to mention the animation team they have done so much for us they literally make our vacation fun I like the way they take their time and entertain our kids at the pool and they play with them they do really amazing arts and crafts and face painting and much more. I would like to thank Tania, Eva, Oxana and Luigi for all they have done especially on my daughter‘s birthday they brought her her birthday cake they sang her happy birthday song and they just entertained her so much. it was a Great memory for us.

Great location, efficient design, friendly staff. The hotel has the best Oriental restaurant in town (Burj alhamam) and a very cool bar with belly dance show on some days of the week. The beach is well operated. Well done and thank you for the nice stay

This is an incredible hotel with a amazing staff. The view over the Gulf of Aqaba is spectacular. The hotel is modern with plenty of amenities. The pool and jacuzzi area is large with plenty of seating room. There is a bar at the pool between a beautiful hotel beach front. There is a bar upstairs that provides entertainment with a light fare. The hotel breakfast has a variety of western and middle eastern choices. The Lebanese restaurant has an excellent menu and chef. The hotel offers a cafe that offers coffee, tea and sweets. Free wi-fi is available throughout the hotel. The staff is very responsive to meeting client needs; special thanks for the Director of Sales, Nancy Haddadin. Additionally, I always receive excellent service from Jamil M.

first i totaly agree with those who rated this as an excellent place for an amazing vaction. together with the family spent 5 amazing days in this resort. rooms are clean, try to get one with sea view. if you dont want to pay extra for a sea view,may be you can ask for a room on the righ or the left of the hotel , good partial view of the sea with no extra money. excellent breakfast and dinner. pools are kids friendly, nice sauna and gem. i liked the boxes of ice and bottles of water you are given when you go to pool. i really advise any one to try it. prices are not low by the way. and the mini bar prices are a bit high.

I had a fantastic stay. the best resort and the first choice in Aqaba. I like every thing (from swimming pool to beach) Breakfast was good great service and very friendly stuff I recommend this resort. and for sure I will be back

Ideal place to have a beach resort holiday with family or friends, or both.I was probably the only guest staying alone and on work. Sigh!! Lovely resort. Very spacious. Everything you come to expect from an Intercon. I had a very nice room with a lovely beach view. A stroll along the beach on one of the evenings was all I could find time for - unfortunately. Must go back on a holiday soon. On request the chef also made me a very tasty Indian vegetable curry with biryani. A very graceful belly dancer and some throaty arabic singing in the Lounge bar was very nice. As was the Gin they served me with tonic.
